The road right-of-way can vary from 30 feet to 120 feet wide depending on the road. A good general rule of thumb is signs should be placed behind the telephone poles or behind the sidewalks. This means that no signs should be positioned in the area between the curb and the sidewalk on roads with curbs or in front of telephone poles.
Signs can be placed on private property only with the consent of the property owner.
Signs placed in township road right-of-way and removed by our crews will be available for pick up for two weeks at our offices, 2090 Ferry Road. After that, they will be disposed.
Signs placed in county road right-of-way and removed by county crews will be available for pick up for two weeks at their facility at 615 Dayton-Xenia Road, Xenia, Ohio. After that, they will be disposed.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter as we continue to keep the public safe and our roads well maintained.
